Concept of the work:

A beach house, facing the sea, planned for a family of four, where the architectural features were organized to be tied to a modulated structure of reinforced concrete. The order of the vacant and full spaces inside this structure is what provides volume to the project.

  1. The clock. This museum is a place to showcase the IWC-clock as a small and precious object.

New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT (designed using AutoCAD)

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Article source: LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT GmbH

“Biennale compact“

The core idea of the project is to create a kind of „condensed-Biennale-concept“ consisting of diverse unique „pavilions“ which are melted together. Each pavilion differs in shape, size, transparency, etc. in order to create a necklace-like structure of various identities.

Thereby this whole structure will be lifted in order to enable the park to flow through the plot. Each unit could host one of the exhibition spaces (of the fine arts museum or the children’s museum), the diverse areas of the research centre and the lecture hall. The units are connectable in order to enable a maximum in flexibility.

House with Futokoro in Koganei, Japan by Mizuishi Architects Atelier (designed using Vectorworks)

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Article source: Mizuishi Architects Atelier

This house was planned in the deepest part of a site divided into three. Because it was expected that next buildings approach in the east and west, I aimed at the house which wind and looking could pass in the north and south direction. Residents are husband and wife, two little girls, two dogs, three cats.They had many personal things, but when I saw the overflow condition of their things,I thought It is good exactly for them just like “they are not worry,even if they do not tidy up” rather than they keep a thing in storage exactly.

House E in Haruzim, Israel by Sharon neuman architects (designed using Arc+, SketchUp and Revit)

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Article source: Sharon neuman architects

The house is built on a very long, narrow and sloped lot of 940 sq. m. The proportions were one of the generators for the design. The clients wanted a large, spacious house on one hand, while maintaining the intimacy and the sense of a warm family life on the other.

Euralille Youth Centre in Lille, France by JDS Architects

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

Over the past twenty years Lille has become a European hub; a destination for business and congress, a great place to study and live and also a tourist destination. It is a city with a turbulent history of conquest and reconquest, a heritage as an important medieval city and later the industrial capital. It is this history, the unique and striking presence of remnants of ramparts of the citadel, which the project seeks to mention.
